turmoil in afghanistan just as the united states prepares to withdraw thousands of troops. look at this. a fight broke out yesterday as members of the afghan parliament debated whether to impeach the corrupt president there hamid karzai. the brawl raised new concerns about whether the afghan government is in in any way ready to take control of its own security. president obama announced plans to withdraw more than 30,000 u.s. troops by next september. lawyers for the man once considered a top contender for the french presidency met today with prosecutors who are reconsidering the sexual assault charges against him. this thing is blowing up. strauss-kahn's lawyers say it was a productive meeting but the manhattan district attorney's office insists it has not made any decisions on the case. a court allowed strauss-kahn to post bail last week after the prosecutors admitted they had doubts about the credibility of the hotel maid who accused him of attacking her. i say doubts. adam shapiro is with us. we might we hear they have to drop this whole thing because it looks like an unmittty mess.

in iraq, or afghanistan, by maintaining our current level of troops for the next ten years and nobody believes we'll maintain the current level of troops we have in iraq, or afghanistan, for the next ten years, so, this is phony savings, as is the claimed half trillion dollars in interest savings by not spending the trillions we weren't going to spend otherwise. alisyn: there are reports, obviously, the president invited congressional leaders, democratic and republicans, to the white house tomorrow and there are also reports out yesterday, "the new york times," that the white house has agreed to cut in entitlements. and, sounds like there may be progress, and, room to open the debate? >> there could be, but the question about the entitlement cuts is, are they real? are they likely to be realized and are they sooner rather than later? the president, we need to be on a glide path but for example the president offered, again, from my discussions with people who are knowledgeable about these discussions, between the white house and the congress, is they've offered a trillion dollars worth

about america's involvement in iraq and afghanistan and he carried around a card, remember, geraldo, that this is basically, you know, with jihadist brand line on it. okay. let's not forget that. >> i'm not forgetting anything. did i argue with o'reilly when hasan massacre happened saying, wait a second, is he truly motivated by his radical religious politics or is he just a nut job? in this case i think it will become clear because of who he was targeting that he is indeed a homegrown domestic terrorist. i caution everybody. in 2009, the same year that hasan killed 13 of our dear g.i.'s at fort hood, earlier that year a sergeant named john russell, a white guy from texas killed five of his fellow g.i.'s in baghdad. so, you know, we don't call him a texas terrorist or a christian terrorist. we have to be very careful. >> laura: you still think we don't have a problem with radicalization of men, mostly men, in the united states who have made their way into, you know, these very important positions, who carry and harbor grudges and have plans for maiming and destroying american lives.
